Default A new point of view

So I went on a hike alone today, and I climbed a tree, maybe 40 feet up, with most trees being 60-80ft tall, and a few old ones being 100ft or so. And I have to say, it was amazing. With fall setting in, and everything from green to brown in leaves, it was awesome. I recommend everyone go do it. Today if you have time, tomorrow if not. I climbed as high as I could, and the view was just breath taking. It's days like there where I think "I'm about 300-400m from a road, yet everybody who drives by misses this beauty. It's so sad."

I have a very tall tree in my own yard, which I climb often so often in fact that my dog imitated me and now can herself climb trees.

I'm deathly afraid of heights, so I'll stay down here.

She is. I'm so glad she wasn't permanently damaged by the fire. She has already climbed a tree a few times since then



I should probably take more pictures of this sort of thing Really, videos would be better to illustrate how smart she is. She knows around 70 or so simple words.

That sounds fun, but you really can't go climbing whatever tree you want to...

If you're experienced with it, then that's one thing, but I know more than a handful of people who have had broken bones because they either climbed too high or misjudged a branch or a knothole as a good step.

But yeah, getting in a tall tree in a woodsy area can lend itself to some fantastic views.

Ouch, even thinking about falling from a tree makes me cringe..At our old house we used to have this big tree, even bigger than the one that moco posted and it used to straddle our neighbours yard..We had good fun sitting in that tree for hours. Then it got cut down just before we moved out by the new neighbours.

I'm not that good at climbing, because I don't really like heights much (that is, not where there's a chance of falling, I'm fine standing at edges and things, but not hanging over anywhere).

I wish I could climb trees better than I manage to

How is England for getting into the wilderness. Cause I live in a suburb of Columbus ohio, which is 787,000 people about, so pretty big, but it's about a 10 minute drive and I'm completely in the country, away from any signs of city. How's England in that respect?

It depends on where you are. In terms of areas without houses, there's a lot, but there aren't as many large forests - most of the ones there are are smaller. I would be surprised if anywhere was more than a short drive away from somewhere though.
